I'm setting up a computer for my 3 year old to play with. (Yeah, a geek in training. or Kindergeek). I plan on locking down the internet (via firewall) on this, but I may wish to file transfer between the 2 systems.
The distance between the computer & router will be about 18'.
The router is a USR8000 10/100.
So, are the Cat6 cables backward compatible ?
Do I need a Cat6, Cat5 or Cat5e ?
Thanks for the help.
